Dr. Asma Mobin-Uddin is a woman I respect and trust (Forum column, July 16). It is important for all to become informed about religions other than our own. The Islamic faith teaches peace and respect for humanity.

We cannot afford to be ignorant any longer. I once attended a workshop where I learned that the basic profile of a bomber is Spanish speaking, not a Muslim. A terrorist is a terrorist, no matter his cultural background.

Let us embrace people who are different from us and not shun them. Let us be grace-filled people with welcoming arms. This is what our country is founded upon.

The Rev. Rebecca Tollefson, Worthington
